Tasting Notes

Generous if not dominant wood serve as a not-so-subtle backdrop to the intensely sauvage and spicy red currant, cassis, plum and pungently earth aromas. The attractively textured and mouth coating large-scaled flavors enjoy copious amounts of palate coating and tannin-buffering dry extract along with plenty of minerality that adds lift to the imposingly structured finish. This massive effort is very definitely old school and there will be no point in opening this before at least a decade of aging has occurred. Drink: 2032+

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (54), April 2014

The 2012 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru is attired with a more feminine, refined bouquet with red cherries, raspberry and a touch of bergamot: beautifully defined and focused. It expands wondrously in the glass. The palate is underpinned by fine tensile tannins embroidered with a silver thread of acidity and a sophisticated, mineral-driven finish. Excellent.
